Croatia could be kicked out of Euro 2008 if fans abuse England’s black players tomorrow.

Soccer chiefs fear trouble after 200 of their supporters formed a human swastika at a friendly in Italy.

UEFA’s William Gaillard warned: “We won’t tolerate racism. We have had many problems with this in Eastern Europe before and Croatia have been among the worst offenders.

[...]

“Because of the problems we have encountered with Croatian teams in the past, they have been warned future sanctions will be much heavier than any which have been imposed for previous incidents.”

Croatian supporters have a long history of racism. The nation’s federation were fined after French players were racially abused and white supremacist banners were displayed at Euro 2004.

And UEFA were fuming following the human swastika incident in Livorno, Italy, two months ago.

How does forming a swastika abuse black players and how many blacks are on the Italian team? I would think wearing white hoods and/or burning a cross would be a sign of racism.

If I was Croatia I would just say that's how our fans do the wave. LOL

what does being a european black have to do with american symbols of bigotry?

if you want to taunt or offend the ppl you aim to do, you use symbols they recognize as their own, not introduce foreign symbols and hope they get your meaning.

keltic,

Mirorgate's post is a response to mdyoung. I believe he's referring to white hoods and burning crosses as American.

sorry, and mine is gone

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

OK we will go with the swastika being sign of European racism, what the hell would that do for Italy? There are no blacks on their soccer team and they fought on the same side during WWII

Why are we talking about the Italians? Croatia play England tomorrow -- lots of black players on their team.

"Soccer chiefs fear trouble after 200 of their supporters formed a human swastika at a friendly in Italy."

So who were they trying to intimidate on the Italian team?

It wasn't the Italian team, it was AS Livorno who has a reputation for being a "communist team".
